Concerto Caledonia is Scotland's early music group, bringing to life the classical and traditional music of the nation’s history.
The group’s CD recordings include Robert Burns songs in their original versions, classical symphonies from Fife, early Scots fiddle music, and the unique sound of 18th-century Scottish-Italian crossover. Its contemporary recordings include music by Frank Zappa, and Astor Piazzolla. The album, Mungrel Stuff was a Sunday Times Record of the Year, and besides appearing regularly on BBC Radio 3, the group has also been broadcast on Radios 1, 2, and 4.
Recent live collaborations have included Bach’s St John Passion with guest director Mark Padmore, an appearance at Celtic Connections Jamaican Burns Night, and the story of Orpheus with The Tiger Lillies at the Edinburgh International Festival, a programme which the group have since toured to Denmark and France.
